Rory's Story Cubes Review

We love to play games in this house, we play a lot and even though there is an 18-year difference between Kim and Tilly, they still love sitting down to play a game. This month as part of the Blogger board game club, we were sent a game called Rory's Story Cubes.

Rory's Story Cubes is a simple game and the concept of it is so good. The game contains 9 dice and each side on the dice has a different picture. The game is simple and it uses the player's imagination to make it work well. Tilly has trouble with reading and this is so good that she can join in without worrying about struggling with words and that the game doesn't take forever whilst we wait for her to read cards so this game is excellent for younger kids.

There is no right or wrong way to play the game, you just need to use your imagination. As there are nine dice in the game you can use three dice to create the beginning of the story another three dice to create the middle of the story,  and the final three dice can be used to create an exceptional ending for your story. There are so many ideas that can be incorporated into the game,  you could use the dice to create a magical story or you could use the dice to create a historical story or a new one. Either way, your child is learning that as she or he plays.  The way we play it is by Tilly rolling with nine dice, then she chooses her beginning her middle and her and she gets so excited when she knows she's used for imagination and created a story out of her head. With the dice, the possibility of different stories is never-ending,  every time you roll the dice you get a different story.

The idea of the game is so simple and it's so easy to play, it's small so it fits in your handbag and can be played anywhere if our child is bored.Rory's Story Cubes is 9.99 from John Lewis. The game really gets Tillys seal of approval.
